Rippikoulu – Musta Seremonia (1993)

One day somebody is going to make that documentary or write that book about Finnish extreme metal and it's unique nastiness and if it's a proper work, it'll include Rippikoulu and their monstrous second and final demo. See, Rippikoulu crammed... Continue Reading →

Crypt of Kerberos – World of Myths (1993)

Let's keep things in Sweden for today. I've got no problem with that. I've extolled my love of Swedish extreme metal so much on this blog I'll just sum it up for anybody new that Sweden makes some of the... Continue Reading →

Krabathor – Cool Mortification (1993)

The mighty Avenger quietly released a new album recently and unsurprisingly it's a fucking crusher of an album, but it got me thinking "what are some of the other Czech Republic death metal bands?" Avenger straddle the black/death metal genres... Continue Reading →

Invocator – Weave the Apocalypse (1993)

Around this time last year I reviewed Invocator's first album Excursion Demise and extolled it's thrash nastiness. Being from Denmark and being the only other thrash band from Denmark I know of aside from Artillery, they sort of out Artillery-d Artillery with... Continue Reading →

Paramaecium – Exhumed of the Earth (1993)

Eyehategod – Take as Needed for Pain (1993)

I think I’ve gleamed all I can from Eyehategod. This is the third album of theirs to show up on my doom journey list and I only really wanted to delve into their back catalog based on how much I... Continue Reading →

diSEMBOWELMENT – Transcendence Into the Peripheral (1993)

The thing that surprised me about this album was how modern it sounded. There are bands struggling with this sort of guttural, death/doom sound today. There seems to be an endless amount of them too. Leave it to the Australians... Continue Reading →

Katatonia – Dance of December Souls (1993)

While the “Peaceville Three” were charging forward with their British brand of goth-infused doom/death metal, lurking in Sweden was Katatonia. While their British contemporaries seemed to take more of the romantic “art school” goth influence with their music, early Katatonia... Continue Reading →
